About This Site

The Holocaust Encyclopedia provides students, educators, leaders, and policymakers with readily available resources that help them challenge assumptions and develop critical thinking. It includes 850 articles in English, hundreds of which have been translated into 15 languages, including Arabic, Farsi, Russian, and Spanish. Annually, it serves millions of people all over the world.

In 2018, the encyclopedia was enhanced to reflect changes both in the way people learn and in how they access information online. It features new research and scholarship on the Holocaust, as well as more items from the Museum’s Collection, including photographs, films, and oral testimonies.
